ZTE Nubia Z9, since the reference of Chinese smartphones

Whenever we talk about smartphones from China we think Xiaomi as good reference make their local manufacturers, and although it is true that they have no rival when it comes to launch terminal with the best ratio quality/price of the market – Xiaomi my 4i is the test in the range half-, the truth is still missing them go one step further to conquer the highest step on the market.

This step is which has now tried to ZTE, which despite it being obliged to raise prices with their Z9 Nubia, something evident according to its construction and its sheet characteristics, if manages to raise the bar on all fronts for register as a reference of Chinese high-end smartphones.

And not only it has done by the stroke on the table involved in the design and construction of this Z9 Nubia, clearly approaching the Samsung with your Galaxy S6 Edge bet, but also because they have been able to take out of its interesting design with an interactive edge that adds extra functionality and visual appeal.

In addition, have not forgotten that a smartphone reference not only has to be it, but also to be seen, by placing the best available specifications in Nubia Z9 in the market, but demand that coup of rudder that differentiates you from the rest, and that found in the screen resolution.

Although it is true that the standard of high-end is resolution QHD 1. 440p, but a panel FullHD 1. 080p not penalise virtually visual experience helping to greatly improve the performance of a 810 Snapdragon that can be unleashed by moving less pixels.

The bet is risky, but the truth is that the ZTE Nubia Z9 seems to be one of the most serious competitors among the best of the Android catalog in this 2015, so the only thing we have left is to wait that the Chinese firm decides to bring it to our markets. Sure that many users will thank you, and we will be happy to receive it.
